Back-to-School 2020 is upon us, and we at Heinemann understand that process is different for all of us. Some of us returned to our classrooms to be with our students, while others continue to teach remotely. While there are no perfect solutions to the situation we face, we can all agree that in the year ahead, teachers need to be ready to respond to challenges none of us has ever experienced, including adapting to changing teaching and learning circumstances as they support students’ physical, emotional, and educational needs.
To help schools and districts with blended or virtual teaching, the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project community has created nearly 1,500 student-facing minilesson videos across the Units of Study in reading, writing, and phonics.
Lucy Calkins and her team hope that you’ll allow them to be “co-teachers” with you—TCRWP staff will teach the minilessons on camera, freeing you up for the heart of the teaching: the live conversations, conferring, small group work, and shares you’ll manage with your students.
TCRWP also created support for parents and other caregivers, and brief video notes for teachers with guidance on where in the Units of Study curriculum to find tools and tips for the live parts of your teaching, suggestions on how to adapt the curriculum for students’ specific needs, and even pep talks to help keep you going.
It is important for you to know that these resources were designed as supplements to the print units and will help you adapt those units for a virtual teaching environment. The virtual resources are not being offered as replacements for the print materials. These resources are available by subscription for the reading, writing and phonics Units of Study for the 2020-21 school year. Come join us to learn more about these brand new virtual teaching resources!
